Brunch + Late Long Run

24 Mar

I had some friends in town this weekend.

Erica’s 36th birthday was yesterday. She had a 40’s themed party.
You cannot see Tracy’s hair. But it was very 40s like. If there had been a costume/hair contest. She definitely would have won! Erica had these crazy 40s like shoes and would have won the shoe category! Mostly everyone got into the spirit of the party and dressed up! Very fun night…but very late night.

I had planned to get up and do my long run before brunch but I wanted to sleep in. 😦 Had I known we were going to wait 2 hours for a table I would have re-thought that decision but I did not know!

I sent Tracy and Mike early to get a table at Tin Shed. We were meeting Alison and Ryan at 11. Which is murder suicide when you are talking brunch on a Sunday morning in Portland. If you do not get to your brunch spot or a GOOD brunch spot before 8:30…you are guaranteed to WAIT! The total time for 6 of us (Tracy and Mike waited the longest) was 1:45. Crazy Talk!! We ended up having an awesome breakfast…and everyone forgot that we waited a very long time to eat!! Tin Shed is definitely top 3 breakfasts in Portland!! Love it!!



After sleeping in, going to brunch, running errands and doing a few things around the house it was 5pm and I HAD to do my long run! I had big plans to go to the oh-so-coveted Forest Park but the time got away from me. It was supposed to be warmish today. Sunny. It ended up being cloudy mostly and I am sure it did not get over 55! I was hoping to wear a short sleeve short but I did not.
I had another great change of scenery in the new ‘hood run. Not really any kind of plan just headed out east…tried to find some hills. I found a few. Looked for a good one for repeats next week! The sun came out for a few minutes. I tried the lemonade Nuun. Loved it!! Thought long and hard about what I am going to do about my Nuun Hood To Coast application. I have an idea but it has to be REALLY good! Other than that it was better than I thought it was going to be especially for such a late run.

Another weekend bites the dust! What was the highlight of your weekend?

    Jello and jogging: these were the highlights of my weekend! After being food poisoned on Thursday, I spent several days barely able to sip water. But yesterday I got to eat jello, chicken broth, and Heed. Today I added some avocado and some muscle milk. I am looking forward to some hearty food in the next few days (rice and maybe crackers). Then today, despite my weakened state and continued stomach discomfort, I ran two repeats of 16 minutes with no calf pain!!!!! Yeah!!!! Because I felt weak from lack of food and nauseous from the food poisoning, I experienced bonus Ironman-simulation training. What a great day!

    Themed birthdays are great when people dress the part!
    I’m impressed you were able to do your long run that late! If I don’t do it first thing in the morning, it’s hopeless!
    The highlight of my weekend was probably spending more time with the pup- I missed him way too much!
    Looking forward to seeing your Nuun application!

      I did not think about…I just went out and ran. I do not know what got me out of the house. It probably helped that it was not dumping rain! 🙂
